    I would assume these things to be powers by seither.

    That's what I initially thought, but I guess it's powered by seithr, like Bodine says? That would make sense. But there's obviously some confusion about this, we should have Giga clarify himself, unless Giga already confirmed this to you, Bodine.

    Having things powered by Seithr would make sense, it would still be interesting to see electricity come into play later on once this whole thing is cleared up though.

    Nah, I'm pretty sure worldbuilding is for the players in these things. So like, the GM makes the skeleton but things like individual islands or specific technology are just based on whoever introduces them first, then the other players build off of that. Like improv. So absent of what GigaRidley happens to think, Neosquid and Johaggis have been pretty clearly using electricity since the start. Also everyone's been using cell phones, which makes it pretty clear that radio waves got invented more than a couple weeks back. Also electricity I think, right? I think you'd need that to have electromagnetic-wave-based communication. I mean I don't know, maybe it's magic electricity. But if we already have that I think I'm gonna avoid buying stock in TeslaCorp.

    I was posting based on the assumption that all the worlds tech was powered by seither. The radio waves bit I edited after receiving a pm from Giga. Radio waves have existed, but used differently than what Vin had discovered. I just thought with a source of power as abundant and powerful as seither, this world wouldn't have thought to use anything else. Vehicles, cellphones, all that I thought would be seither driven in this fictional world. That was the premise I built vins story off of. A guy who realizes that the worlds source of power is also the worlds biggest threat and he wanted to save the world in that sense.

    Nah, 'course not. It ain't like seither is important to this RP or nothin'. This ain't BlazBlue.

    I think I cleared up most of the inconsistencies in my post. Besides, the "La March" background could provide a whole new dynamic for Vin. Maybe he'll see some glimpse of strangely advanced technology and question what he's doing, or why it was not only so easy, but why everyone tends to be so accepting of some loner scientist, while not embracing his results directly. He could go on some sort of transformative path of self-discovery, or even choose to hold a grudge against those who deceived him, and attempt to bring them down.

    Furthermore, as Lennox was pointing out, basically everyone's using electrical equipment of some kind. Technology didn't completely halt because of seithr. It's not like society didn't invent gunpowder or guns themselves. I guarantee that Weidr's and Gale's guns are not familiars, and I doubt Ansa's is either. Influenced does not mean dominated throughout. Could you imagine if you had to bring all of your lights to a store to have them recharged every short while? Someone would've invented a better way, long before this rpg even takes place.
